The zero-research ESPN heads will look at the box score and come to the conclusion that our defense is terrible.

Garbage yards #%@$#!!!

our D didnt play as well this week against a rookie QB as they did last week. Im kinda worried about whats going to happen when we meet a good offense.

Our D inflated their numbers with the turnovers. Other than that, I think they played pretty sloppy and not very good at all.

The D wasn't great, but they were good and that is simply good enough for us to win usually.

I agree a lot of the yards today especially in the 2nd half were just garbage yards. But the defense isn't great...decent, probably middle of the pack by years end, but that's where they were in '06. So with this offense we should be just fine.

The defense gave up 2 TD's and 2 field goals, held the Eagles to 70 yards rushing, and got 3 turnovers, including a pick-6. They gave up quite a few yards through the air in garbage time when the game was already in the bag (at about the 4 minute mark in the 3rd).

Nah, the defense played well today, not great, but pretty good in the second half. With the league's #1 offense, we don't need more than that.

BTW, last week the panthers gave up 185 yards rushing, 102 receiving in an eagles blowout.
